This restaurant only opened 6 weeks ago I was informed by the manager and is a sister restaurant of the lovely Red Onion Restaurant in Limerick. I went here on a Saturday night with a voucher for 2 steak mains, 2 sides and a half bottle of wine which cost me €29. We made a booking and arrived on Saturday night. I was surprised at how small the restaurant was but our table was ready and we had a look at the menus. We ordered mussels and the breaded scampi to start. They were both very tasty and we were impressed. We also got the house Chile Savignon Blanc as the wine which was included which the voucher which was delicious. We then ordered another full bottle as it so good. As it was steak house and we had bought the voucher for steaks so we said we would both get the rib eye steak with a choice of sauce and potatoes as our side. There was plenty of choice on the menu otherwise however. Our steaks arrived and we decided to order a side of roast veg to share as there was only one side included with the steaks (even thought the menu says that veg and choice of potatoes are included with every main, this doesn't include steaks apparently). I was very happy with my steak but the other wasn't the best cut and not as tasty. I ordered creamy mushroom sauce to go with it but it looked and tasted the same as the peppercorn that was also ordered so I didn't have too much of that. We then decided to go for dessert. They change weekly so I got the roasted marshmallow and chocolate upside down cheesecake which was by far the most exquisite dessert I have ever had.. We also got the apple pie and ice cream. We ended up paying another 56e on top of what was spent on the voucher which I thought was a bit expensive for what we got but overall it was a lovely meal. The service was great and the staff are very friendly.

Got a pigsback voucher for the early bird for 2 for 21.50. When I rang and said I had a voucher I felt the lady was hesitant as to whether they had a vacancy or not but said she would fit me in and rehash some tables,.When we got to the restaurant at the 6 pm booking there were just 2 other couples there. Chicken wings were off the menu so I had prawns & my partner had ribs, both tasty. For mains he had beef and I had pork, small portions so we had to get chips to supplement. Deserts were good. We each had a glass of wine, very overpriced for cheap wine at 7 euro per glass. In other restaurants same wine is 4-5 euro. Coffee was 2.50 no offer of refils. I was disappointed with athmosphere as it was the friday of the bank holiday weekend with Riverfest & the great Limerick run weekend. The voucher was to be for 43 euro worth of food and the extras of 2 x wine and 2 x coffees for 19 euro. If I paid 62 euro for that I would feel like I really got stung big time.
